A ski accident with his daughter gave outdoor-industry veteran Dan Kostrzewski a new perspective on the sport.

It’s around this time of year that we tend to ask ourselves the big questions: Am I living the life I want to be living? Am I a good a person? And of course, is this going to be an epic ski season or a bust? This week we present a story that miraculously addresses all of these questions. It comes to us from the good folks at the Dirtbag Diaries and has outdoor-industry veteran Dan Kostrzewski sharing a very personal tale about a skiing accident with his young daughter and how it helped him gain a new perspective on the sport that has long been at the center of his personal and professional identity.

Outside’s longstanding literary storytelling tradition comes to life in audio with features that will both entertain and inform listeners. We launched in March 2016 with our first series, Science of Survival, which was developed in partnership with PRX, distributors of the idolized This American Life and The Moth Radio Hour, among others. We have since expanded our show and now offer a range of story formats, including interviews with the biggest figures in sports, adventure, and politics, as well as reports from our correspondents in the field.
